Retrotech also got a mention on Radio Caroline.
Didn't catch his name, but the DJ said he had a stall selling a few restored radios.

Museum Bring & Buy Results:
I have just heard from Richard Stowe, Chairman of the BVW&TVM, who was in charge of the B&B stall. He has just banked 1400 from the event. That is a record result, and reflects the effort put in and the much better numbers this year. Thank you everyone for bringing your goodies, both for sale and donation.
The sales commission only makes up a small fraction of this total, with the bulk being from incredibly kind donations. But for many visitors, a real Bring & Buy is a key feature of the event.
Once again, thanks all for supporting the B&B.
-Jeremy

Wow ! A superb result then -
A big thank you to all the team who fronted the B & B and stayed calm and professional when assailed by a certain rude individual who clearly needs to learn some manners !!
